Maryborough - Fast Facts

Maryborough
Gracious and attractive city on the Mary River.
Maryborough calls itself 'Heritage City' and while it doesn't compare in grandeur and graciousness to Queensland's two premier 'Heritage Cities' - Rockhampton and Charters Towers - it can claim to predate them both by some decades. The city does have a large number of beautiful buildings and the original Maryborough site - now nothing more than a series of plaques set in lush tropical surroundings - is a model of how to recreate imaginatively a bygone era.

Rainbow Beach
Pleasant quiet holiday spot which also serves as a gateway to Fraser Island and Cooloola National Park
Originally known as Back Beach, Rainbow Beach was renamed after the coloured sands located near the town which lies to the south of Fraser Island. It was gazetted as late as 1969 when it was established to service the local sandmining industry. Until that time there was no road to Rainbow Beach, with the only access being via boat from Tin Can Bay.
